This class provides an in-depth study of the professional techniques used in analog tape-based recordings. Students are instructed in tape machine mechanics and the analog tape transfer function. Machine alignment, razor blade editing, backwards reverb, comping (combining tracks), tape flanging, tape loops, format comparison (analog vs. digital), and documentation standards are all discussed. Students apply these skills in the studio using 2 and 1/4 analog tape.
